Bill O'Brien will look to continue his winning ways following losses when the Penn State Nittany Lions host Purdue this Saturday in Happy Valley.
Penn State is coming off a loss to Minnesota in which it was shut out in the second half, despite Zach Zwinak's 150-yard performance. The Nittany Lions fell to 5-4 with that loss, matching their loss total from 2012.
The Boilermakers lost last week to Iowa, sliding to 1-8 on the year. On the bright side, they scored for the first time since October 12, after being shut out by both Ohio State and Michigan State.
If Penn State wants to finish strong, it will need to get the ball rolling against a Purdue team that finds itself struggling in head coach Darrell Hazell's first year.
Purdue is looking for its first Big Ten win of the year and could come in with a "nothing to lose" mentality, making it more dangerous than expected.
